Although Severin spent most of his adult life engaged in grain and cattle farming, he also enjoyed math games, adopting mostly black dogs (especially Labradors), planting trees, tinkering with radios, reading about black holes and star formation, following the stock market, and creatively avoiding home repair projects. Severin also loved riding his bike, telling stories, exchanging jokes, and sharing chocolate bars "60:50". He is missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends, all of whom he considered himself enormously blessed to have.
The Poirot family gratefully thanks the many compassionate caregivers of Good Shepherd Community Care and Rehabilitation in Lockwood Missouri, who cared for Severin during the past few years of his life.
